Eggtoberfest Canadian Smoked Salmon
Description:Canadian smoked salmon
Kosher salt
Brown sugar
Instructions:Fresh salmon filet with skin on. Place in non-reactive tray side-by-side. Cover entire filet with kosher salt until no pink flesh is visible, then follow with brown sugar (until no kosher salt is visible). Don't be afraid to go heavy with both ingredients. Cover and place in fridge for at least 24hrs, no more than 72hrs. The brine will become like syrup overnight. I like to turn the filet over the next day (stirring the brine mixture by hand). Leave in fridge until ready to smoke.

Remove marinated/brined salmon from fridge and get egg ready. I like to egg indirect with a plate-setter. Load egg full for 3-4 hour smoke. I will soak maple or cherry chips (two large handfulls) to enhance the flavor. Get the egg to appx. 220-250 degrees (stable), then throw chips on, put plate-setter with drip-pan on, close egg and get salmon ready. Take each filet and lightly drain marinade/brine, then place in egg (skin side down). Keep egg at appx. 220-250 for 3-4 hrs. Don't peek! Ready when flesh will slightly split, juice will rise to top, and slightly firm to touch. You really can't over-cook! Try a couple of times, you'll get the hang of it. Hope you enjoy.

Notes:Serve warm or cold. Break or cut into bite-size pieces. Serve with crackers and cheese.
